  • 18 November 2006
  • Exclusive from New Scientist Print Edition
To celebrate New Scientist magazine's 50<sup>th</sup> birthday, we have decided to tackle the truly big questions ... ... ...
---1---
What is reality? By Roger Penrose
Can we be sure that the world we experience is not just a figment of our imaginations?
---2---
What is life? By Robert Hazen
If we encountered alien life, chances are we wouldn't recognise it - not even if it were here on Earth
---3---
Do we have free will? By Patricia Churchland
The more we find out about how the brain works, the less room there seems to be for personal choice or responsibility
---4---
Is the universe deterministic? By Vlatko Vedral
However you look at it, the answer seems to be "maybe"
---5---
What is consciousness? By Paul Broks
How does the brain, with its diverse distributed functions, come to arrive at a unified sense of identity?
---6---
Will we ever have a theory of everything? By Michio Kaku
2000 years of rational enquiry may be approaching their crowning glory. Just one more push could be enough

What happens after you die? By Mary Roach
We have all wondered if there is an afterlife, but only a few are brave - or foolish - enough to try and find out

~s~
Quote:
In this essay James Hughes addresses What Comes After Homo sapiens? IN 1957, biologist Julian Huxley, brother of Aldous, coined the term “transhumanism” for the idea that we should use technology to transcend the limitations of our bodies and brains. Huxley believed that “the human species can, if it wishes, transcend itself” through “evolutionary humanism”.
Almost half a century on, transhumanism has become a real possibility, pointing the way to an unbelievably transcendent future that would have been unimaginable even to Huxley. The choices we make today are deciding an answer to the question “What comes after human civilisation?”....

- this is the most important idea which has ever been thought.

What happens after you die? By Mary Roach

We're dead.

The important question is what can we validly hope for evolution to deliver in the future?
and we can solve this question with the idea which arises from the following combination of ideas:

-1- Evolution ~eg~ of virus has favoured long term survival of virus - and existence with host - and not extermination of host.
This represents 4 -> 13 dimensions in
(3->4->13d)n

-2- We live for many years - and the tendency is towards increased longevity -
so how?

-3- Bipolarity is featured as an aspect of emergent structures

-4- Mammals have a 'remarkably constant number of heart beats from 240 x 5 years in the rat versus 5 x 200 years in the Galactic toitoise - from
Quote:
Time (Revz) thread on ADDF :: Science (Demonic Goddess)
-5- Heart beat relates to bipolarity also - a shift between poles - the basis underlying potential energy.
See the pulsar ~or~ :-)
Tammy's (meadd823) avatar - the pulsating cat.

-6- Emergent evolution defines an evolutionary life cycle for the evolutionary structure (time from the perspective of the thing
- is a consequence of the evolutionary status of a thing) -
- whereby - 'lifetime' increases with evolutionary advancement.

The sun is currently half way (~ at 5 in its 10 billion years of stunning radiance) through its evolutionary cycle.

-7- The heart rate slows in meditation - and man is becoming an ever more efficient aerobic organism - we're becoming endurance aerobic and not 'explosive' anaerobic organisms.

-8- The meditative state is associated with lowered EEG and creativity
- the theta/alpha EEG switch (between the sleeping and waking states) at approximately 8 Hz -
-> -> ->
- the frequency of firing of the central dopaminergic circuit -> ~8 Hz
and
- the frequency of the principal mode of the Schumann resonance -> ~8 Hz.

What happens after you die? By Mary Roach
We have all wondered if there is an afterlife, but only a few are brave - or foolish - enough to try and find out
We have evolved from a long chain of emergent events - each of which increases in the length of their subsequent life cycle -
- the increased energy which is incorporated in post-emergent structures (by definition here) - changes the relative cycling time (relative to its previous form) - and so reflects a greater 'longevity' - when the pre- and post-emergent structure life cycles are measured on the same scale.

It's a little like stating that a car travelling at 30 mph will take longer to travel 1000 times around a 1 mile circuit than it will take to travel 1000 times around a 400 metre circuit (and still at a constant 30 mph).

"Millennium Madness"
Physics Problems for the Next Millennium


In 1900 the world-renowned mathematician David Hilbert presented twenty-three problems at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Paris. These problems have inspired mathematicians throughout the last century. Indeed, Hilbert's address has had a profound impact on the direction of mathematics, reaching far beyond the original twenty-three problems themselves. As a piece of millennial madness, all participants of the Strings 2000 Conference were invited to help formulate the ten most important unsolved problems in fundamental physics. Each participant was allowed to submit one candidate problem for consideration. To qualify, the problem must not only have been important but also well-defined and stated in a clear way.
The best 10 problems were selected at the end of the conference by a selection panel consisting of:
  • Michael Duff (University of Michigan)
  • David Gross (Institute for Theoretical Physics, Santa Barbara)
  • Edward Witten (Caltech & Institute for Advanced Studies)

so was that 'briliant' or cheap spangly celebrities?

They are simply human beings - whose discoveries would have been made by another - given their absence -
it is important to see that all of the answers (to be provided here) - to all of these questions - lead one to define an effectively equivalent potential for brilliance in any human being -

I have the feeling that these're the very people who kill others -
without even the slightest of moments of reflection over the morality of their actions.

because you're not one of the people who seeks to engineer partitions between people with labels -
brilliant minds - how very funny - when we find that all of those who'd either call or seek to be called
'special'
for some characteristic of mind -
- are by definition NOT -
they are not brilliant
she does not have a greater intelligence than you
he is not stupid

that is the beauty of mind -
mind is simply the equivalent of DNA - with the capacity to 'mutate' without mutation - at will
- thought is the equivalent to the mind -
- of mutation to DNA.

Did anybody really think that we were worse than the simplest of micro-organisms - because of our reduced rate of mutation to environmental trigger.

Epigenetics reflects the essential connector between classical protein mutation to environmental trigger and advancement of mind to (and similarly) - environmental 'survival' -
- though I prefer now - to recharacterize the idea of environmental survival - which has an element of desperately clinging onto life -
- into the celebration of life
and evolutionary ascension within constraint of environmental energetic availability.

So - common usage of

environmental survival -> evolutionary pressure upon all things to become 'better.'

'Better' - here has a tight definition - reflecting increased content of potential energy
(from earlier in this thread).

There is only evolution and evolution is unidirectional -
its only :-)
desire
for everything (not just us) - to become 'better' (usage as above).

Switching now - to the more common usage of better - it's time that we became better - because

all of this ->
they are not brilliant
she does not have a greater intelligence than you
he is not stupid
<- all of that

- quite frankly - is real stupid - and not worthy of a self-proclaimed intelligent species.

From the perspective of mind -
- which is the sole definition of man (modern man) -
we are all 'potential'ly the same.

Lack in proper (and sometimes individualized) education to all is the sole reason for the use of 'potential' above
and explains why man appears to display such widely different intelligences
- in 'public' life.

Therein lies the difference between the selfish gene and the selfish logical model (meme)
(both constructs of Dawkins - I believe) -
- it's impossible to be 7 feet tall if being 7 feet tall is not described within one's genetic makeup -
- however that's the physical aspect of man (legacy animal aspect of man) - and we're defined by the higher evolutionary character of mind -
- where anybody can be anything ->
-> truly echoing the pattern of transition (which man has seen through our recorded history)
- of legacy animal rule ->- collective rule

~that is~
of autocracy -> collective democratic rule
of an Emperor -> collective forum rule
of monarchy -> equivalence in power between all citizens

- however the notion of competition between countries for resources need also be dropped -
- since a one world philosophy (as witnessed here on ADDF) - where all humans share responsibility for our collective -
- is the clear - final deliverable which this process of change in man
- of man learning to use his own mind -
will deliver.

One World of equals -
the emergent structure of mind's very special gift to us.

And of course - what ensues

Libertť, …galitť, Fraternitť
mais pour tout.


That's how we work.

Simply
one idea :

(3->4->13d)n

-> provides the undeniable meaning of life
(without need for proof - because we'll all know that it's right
- just as nobody has ever needed to prove to another
that the sky is blue).

I agree and your point is very well explained and I doubt anyone could find a logical hole in that argument. *Ignoring Personal Perspective*+Focusing on the logical reasoning within.

(3d-4d-13d)n
-> provides the undeniable meaning of life
(without need for proof - because we'll all know that it's right
- just as nobody has ever needed to prove to another
that the sky is blue).
then we'll know what we've always suspected - and have proof in what we've always strongly believed.

The good guys in this world have all been credibly and not pretend moral -
not politically correct moral (under threat of punishment) -
- but truly 'good'.

So - why?

The solution is interesting - because it exposes morality to be a biophysical property - kinda' like diamond is hard.
And in the light of an actual biophysical process - favourable kinetics can be defined.

The profound nature (though actually just so intuitively appealing) - is that we define our own mechanism for happiness within context of all things which exist -
- a kinda' more than 'everything'

and so place ourselves within context of the Universe (and not as 'gods' as previously) - though gain all of those components of life - which science had sought to eradicate -
including an understanding of the basis of metaphysics.

These ideas unite physics with metaphysics.

Science (as the study of reality) is not allowed to pick and choose its subject of scrutiny -
- it needs to envelope issues including god, spirituality, faith, belief -
and to produce a single model which explains our ENTIRE context.

( -> 3-d -> 4-d -> 13-d -> )n
(just a few characters)
does just that.

It's all we need to know.

So basicly (dumbing it down a little for me) that means the universe is this:


[<-[->[<-[->[u]<-]->]<-]->]

Meaning the universe is infinite which means that all possibilities are possible and do happen within the same area...

On some planet that looks just like ours and have humans just like ours and a sun just like ours and some one who looks just like me i could be...


Hitler?
A power ranger?
not ADD?
Have 8 workable arms?

and not only that but its not that it could be.. its that it has already happened/is happening or will eventually happen considering the meaning of infinite would change the equation for the likly hood of something happening from (using a quarter as an example; heads) 1/2=.5 chance and changes that to; 1/2=1 sense all possibilities are infinite and that is one of many and WILL happen..

but that makes no sense...

hmmmm how do you explain that one?

actually it makes total sense.... sort of.. help! haha

hmmmm... i wonder
many years from now


*math test*

Bobby J.
2+2=22

Teacher: wrong
Bobby: NO! see ( -> 3-d -> 4-d -> 13-d -> )n means everything is possible so all answers are correct eventually. Give me an A.

Re: The biggest questions ever asked ... answered.

I read once that the brain's ability to store and express dopamine is the source of our "joie de vivre," and that it decreases with age. Is it possible that the ADD brain has evolved to conserve dopamine in preparation of a drastically longer lifespan?
